LISTENER QUESTIONS: 

Q1 - 31:27

A few months back, I tested with my Doctor and found out that I am gluten intolerant, so I’ve been really careful to eat gluten free. I had my husband and son tested as well, and they don’t appear to be intolerant. I didn’t really make any changes to their diets, but now I am starting to wonder, Should I be limiting their gluten as well? I have some friends who eat gluten free, but they aren’t gluten intolerant…should we all be avoiding gluten like the plague? I get such mixed messages.

  • Heather in Lubbock, TX

 

Q2 - 35:05 

I stopped breast feeding my daughter around 11 months old, and now she is 4. She drinks organic whole milk about twice a day and loves it, she asks for it if I forget to give it to her. But now I am reading that kids shouldn’t drink milk past a certain age. I know so many people are concerned about dairy, and I personally drink almond milk, but my daughter wants the real thing. What is your opinion on cows milk for children? Is there an age that we should stop serving it to them?

  • Jamie in Knoxville

 

Q3 - 40:15 

I have read a lot about the benefits of sauna for Arthritis, and have been going to the sauna at my gym every day after workout. But now everyone is talking about INFRARED saunas. What is the difference in the benefits of a traditional sauna like I have at my gym and an infrared sauna? Do I need to track down an infrared, or will the standard sauna at my gym do the trick?

  • Helen in Fairfax

 

Q4 - 43:25

What is your opinion on Autoimmune disease and working out? I am diagnosed with Lupus and my doctor is always telling me things like I should be listening to my body and taking it easy when I am in a flare up. But I’ve noticed that when I work out, even when I am feeling awful, I do feel a little bit better overall afterwards. The only problem is after I workout, I puff up like a blow fish. Why is my body puffing up after a workout? And does this mean I should be taking it easy? I don’t want my life to stop because I don’t feel well.

  • Amy in St Pete

 

Q5 - 47:55 

I always wear toe nail polish and get regular pedicures. I took the polish off myself a couple of weeks ago and noticed that my nails were extremely yellow and overall unhealthy looking. I decided to leave the polish off for a few weeks to let them breathe, and they haven’t improved! A lot of things that I read online point to autoimmune issues, and some scary things like liver problems.  But I also know that it can be simple like some sort of deficiency. Is this something I should be concerned with? What can I do to improve my nail health, and to consider the root cause?

#80 - The Test You NEED to Take, How to Not Get a UTI, and Does Celery Juice do ANYTHING?? w/ Guillermo Ruiz

March 1, 2019

Today’s guest is Dr. Guillermo Ruiz. He is passionate about advancing naturopathic practices with an evidence-based medicine approach for issues like Auto-Immune Disorders, Hormone Balance, Thyroid Disease, Heavy Metal Toxicity, and infectious disease. He practices medicine at Integrative Health in Scottsdale, Arizona, with Dr. Alan Christianson, who many of you have probably heard of. He also hosts a podcast called “30/30 Health” where he interviews the most influential personalities in the health movement. It’s such an honor to have him with us today!

Youtube Version: https://youtu.be/JtGfCzrJwoA

Dr. Ruiz Site: www.3030strong.com/

 Starter Questions:

Tell us about yourself, how did you get your start in medicine, and where did you find your passion for naturopathic practice?

One of the things I know you are really passionate about is research, what is one of the projects that you have going on right now that you are really excited about?

I first head of you through your work with Paleo FX, and we have a lot of listeners who eat Paleo, or mostly Paleo, because of different auto-immune and hormonal issues. Is the Paleo diet something that you are passionate about for everyone, or are you on more of a case by case basis with that, depending on their issues?

Before we get to listener questions, tell me about your diet, I always like to ask my guest to walk my listeners through a day in the life. What did you eat yesterday, and when did you eat? Yesterday was the Super Bowl so that could affect your answer!

Listener Questions:

Q1 - 21:49

I am always trying to figure out what is wrong with me LOL! My thyroid is functioning a lot better- I’ve been eating 95% Paleo, and also fasting in about a 6-hour window. But I am still feeling some of the symptoms that I attributed to my thyroid issues, like being constantly tired and constantly cold. My most recent bloodwork showed my iron as being really low, and borderline anemic. Do you think this could be at the root of my issues?  And if so, what are some of the best ways to improve my iron levels?

- Shannon in Northern Virginia

Q2 - 29:18

Q: I have had three Urinary Tract Infections in the past 6 months. I have been seeing someone new and heard that can cause the infections, which made the first one explainable. But they keep coming back! Is there such a thing as chronic UTIs? Or am I doing something horrible to my body that could be causing them? I feel like I am spending the majority of my life going to the bathroom, or in pain!

- Anonymous

Q3 - 34:21

Q: Everywhere I turn, I am hearing about celery juicing! I remember you talking about it a few months ago, and since then, it has become such a trend! Can you talk some more about the benefits of celery juice, a vegetable that I thought until recently, was mostly water! Also, I can’t stand the taste of the juice, but I don’t mind eating it.  Will I get the same effects if I eat celery instead of drinking it/?

- Madeline in Chesapeake

Q4 - 42:18

Q: My friend had me give myself an at home iodine test to check my levels, where I applied something to my skin, and it soaked up all the iodine, which meant my levels were low. Iodine is something that has never been on my radar as something I need to be concerned with, and now I am like “great that’s one more thing”! Why has my doctor never talked about this, and is this something I should be worried about? What is the function of Iodine, and what are some ways I should get more of it? The most obvious is iodized salt, but there are so many mixed reviews on salt these days!

- Melissa in Fresno

#78 - Debunking Intermittent Fasting Myths, How to Do a 5 Day Fast, How Many Supplements is TOO MUCH?? w/ Megan Ramos - IDM Program Director

February 22, 2019

Today’s guest is president of the Intensive Dietary Management Program, which she founded with her partner Dr. Jason Fung, who I am sure you are all familiar with.  She coaches clients all over the world, teaching them the principles that allowed her to lose 60 pounds herself and maintain that healthy lifestyle. It’s such an honor to have her on the show today, please welcome Megan Ramos!

Video Version: https://youtu.be/c9W1EHdiaVc

Megan's Website: https://idmprogram.com/

STARTER QUESTIONS:

Tell us a little about your health journey? through all of my interviews, I have found a common theme that most people have a huge personal “Why” for what they do.

How did IDM come to be? From what I understand, it started small and has just BLOWN up!

You guys offer a great community, both on Facebook, and Live Q and As and different forums, as well as individualized coaching. Can you tell us more about everything that IDM offers?

I know that personally, you tend to follow the Ketogenic diet for the most part, with a few cheats here and there. I don’t follow the Keto diet, but it seems like there are a lot of Intermittent Fasting fans out there who also eat Ketogenic. How do these two go hand in hand? People ask me all the time if you can be in Ketosis without eating Keto.

A question that I like to ask every guest, is what is a day in the life of Megan like? Can you tell us what you eat from the time you wake up until you go to bed at night? What hours do you eat and fast, etc? Take yesterday for example.

Today, I want to do something a little different. Our podcast started out talking about Intermittent Fasting, and it is really the backbone of the show, though we have guests that come on and talk about all kinds of things like Thyroids, Hormones, Gut Health, etc. But today I really want to get back to the basics of Intermittent Fasting and have you debunk 5 of the Most Common Intermittent Fasting Myths that we hear all the time. So I’m going to share the myths, and you will respond to them. Ready?

MYTHS:

Myth #1- 25:50 - Intermittent fasting will cause my metabolism to slow down because my body will think it’s starving.

Myth #2- 28:20 - Intermittent fasting is bad for my blood sugar. If I don’t eat sugar every couple hours, I will see my blood sugar drop and I will pass out and feel week. 

Myth #3- 30:10 - When I am following Intermittent fasting, I can eat whatever I want and as much as I want, as long as it is in my eating window.

Myth #4- 31:36 - It is not safe to workout while Intermittent fasting. I need to eat carbs and sugar before working out.

 

Listener Questions:

Q1 - 40:04

I was listening to a doctor on another podcast recently who mentioned that he does Intermittent Fasting for half of the year, every year, from January-June. He did not really give his reasoning why but said he had been doing this for many years. This was the first I heard of a regimen like this, and I am assuming since he was a Dr that there was some reason for it. Do you know of any benefits to intense Intermittent Fasting for a short portion of the year, and “normal” eating for the rest of the year?

  • Joyce in Colorado

Q2 - 43:00

I love your show but I feel like I’ve listened to different people, and different people recommend different supplements and I love all the different people, but I keep adding different supplements every time I listen to a new show. I’m up to 14 different ones and I think this is too much and out of control with too many supplements. How many is too many, and is there 1 that I should be taking for sure, and how can I dial this number down.

  • Judy Calgary

Q3 - 50:04

I have been doing the Keto diet for the past couple months, and since then I have joined several Facebook groups of people who are doing the same. I have noticed several comments when people are talking about a specific food item or recipe, where they will say “Such and such is low carb, but it’s not keto”, or some people will refer to their personal diets like low carb but not keto. Can you explain the difference in the low carb diet and the Keto Diet?

-Tarryn in Bedford

Q4 - 53:06

I have been consistent with Intermittent Fasting for 3 months now, and I can’t believe the results I am seeing! Not only in my weight loss, but with my mental clarity and energy. 6 days a week, I eat in a 6-hour window, typically from noon to 6 pm. The only exception to my eating window is my morning coffee. I have found some flavored Keurig cups that don’t appear to have any calories or sugar, but the ingredients say: “Coffee and other natural flavors”. I am not someone who likes to ask questions that I can easily find on Google, but I have literally spent hours trying to find an answer for this online, and haven’t come to any conclusions! It’s not just one Keurig cup brand either, I notice a trend in these “other natural flavors” with no explanation. Will these flavors break my fast, and hurt my weight loss, even if they appear to be calorie free?

  • Jenna in Connecticut

Q5 - 54:47

I recently started working out with a new trainer, who is insistent that I eat 4-5 small meals a day. I try to explain to him that this way of thinking is extremely old school, that our body doesn’t need to eat all day long, but the problem is that he is in shape and the expert, and I am someone with a lot of weight left to lose. From everything I’ve learned from this podcast and in your book, I truly believe I shouldn’t be feeding my body all day long, and that I need to give it time to rest and digest! Not only that, but I don’t have time to be prepping and shopping and eating that many meals each day. How should I explain this to him in a way that he will respect and accept? I want his help with my workouts but simply don’t agree with this way of thinking.

  • Heather in Virginia

Q6 - 58:08

If I want to do a longer fast, let’s say 5 full days. There’s no way I can do it without green juice, lemon in my water, or cream in my coffee. Are you ok with this?

#77 Is it possible to eat too much healthy food, all about Whole 30? How to lose weight and keep it off, and are cheat meals good or bad? With Adam Schaeuble!

February 15, 2019

Welcome back to the Waist Away podcast! Today’s guest is a new friend of the show. Chantel met him when she appeared on his podcast a few weeks ago, the Million Pound Mission. He is on a mission to help others lose a collective one million pounds. He also runs a boot camp, a university, and he does coaching because he is passionate about helping people. It’s an honor to have Adam Schaeuble on the show today!

Listener Questions: 

 

I have never had a problem with losing weight, I am able to cut weight anytime I need to by modifying my diet and exercise. My problem has always been with maintaining my weight. As soon as I hit my weight loss goals, I let my foot off the gas, and slowly gain it back. What advice do you have to help make my weight loss last?

 - Shawn in Tampa

 

Q2 - 21:47

I’ve been trying to be more mindful of my sugar consumption and applying the two bite rule, not having more than three bites of anything super sweet. I want to know if I should be applying the same rule to fruit? It seems like everyone is so divided on this topic, some people say I should eat as many fruits and veggies as I crave, while others say I need to eliminate or severely limit my fruit intake. What’s your opinion on this?

 - Jerry in Harrisonburg

 

Q3 - 24:28

In your book, you talk about not depriving yourself of the foods that you love, and how you allow yourself to eat what you’re craving on occasion. My problem is that I can’t stop once I start. If I am craving chicken nuggets from Chick Fil A, just 5 won’t do it…I will eat and eat 20 nuggets. For this reason, I rarely allow myself to indulge. I wish I could just have a couple nuggets, for example, and be satisfied! Do you have any tips to help me stop? I need to find the balance between deprivation and binging!

 - Anonymous

 

Q4 - 29:15

I have been doing Intermittent Fasting and steadily losing weight for almost a year now. I am super close to my goal weight. During this year, I haven’t really done much exercise, but at the beginning of the year, I started working out consistently. I  am really loving the workouts, they make me feel great! But the problem is I have noticed that the scale is stalling. Where I was consistently losing weight every month, I have been stuck for almost a month now! I am burning calories, and sticking to a 6 hour window 5 days a week, and a 2 hour window two days a week. Recently, my friend told me that maybe I am not losing weight since I am gaining muscle with my workouts. Do you think this is the case? I always remember hearing that muscle weighs more than fat. Is this really true? When will I start to see the scale drop again?

 - Heather in Chesapeake

 

Q5 - 32:57

On my journey to cut back on sugar, I have come across some sugar substitutes that I really like. My favorite one is Swerve. I know that Aspartame is really horrible for you, but I am wondering your opinion on Swerve? What is your opinion on things like Coconut sugar and monk fruit?

 - Angela in Mckinney, TX

 

Q6 - 35:56

I have a bunch of friends doing the Whole 30 this month and posting about it. I am shocked how things like potatoes and corn are encouraged in this plan, and appear to be unlimited! I know that these things have a lot of carbs in them, and even corn is really closer to being a grain than a vegetable. If these things are prepared naturally (obviously not deep fried LOL), should I be concerned with my intake? Also, what is your opinion on Whole 30?

 - Lauren in Chesapeake

 

Q7 - 38:59

I want to get your opinion on cheat meals. I seem to get mixed reviews! Some people tell me they are awesome to give a little shock to your metabolism and help satisfy whatever you are craving, and some people tell me that they are not good. What do you think? My personal issue with cheat meals tends to be that often they can turn into a cheat day, then a cheat weekend! LOL.

 - Paris in Northern VA

 

Q8 - 43:20

I LOVE INTERMITTENT FASTING! I have been eating from 12-6 each day and have lost almost 20 lbs in just 3 months! The weight was coming off steadily, but now is starting to stall. The one thing I do enjoy during my fasting hours is a Sugar Free Coffee Syrup. I assumed it was fine since there is no sugar and very few calories, but have been reading up a little on how sometimes these artificial sugars can trick the body into believing they are real sugar and causing the insulin to rise. Should I completely avoid this while I am on the fast? I love having this every morning, it really helps me power through the fast!

 - Courtney in FL

LISTENER QUESTIONS

Q1 - 37:37

My friend got something called the Squatty Potty. It's a stool that sits around your toilet and lifts up your knees so you're sitting like a caveman when you poop. She said this is the way nature intended us to poop, lol. I have never heard of this before and what is the truth behind it? Do you agree with it?

 - Joann in Virginia Beach.

 

Q2 - 39:47

I've tried everything natural to help me go, and it seems like everything works for a short amount of time and then all of the sudden it stops working. I've tried Senna Tea, Aloe Lax, Smooth Move just to name a few. Why is it that they seem to work and then all of the sudden stop? Do you have any recommendations for something else to either drink or take as a supplement to help me go?

 - Natalie in Alabama

 

Q3 - 41:39

I listened to your podcast about floating poop and I went to my doctor and he said that floating poop isn't that big of a deal. It was thought to be for a little while but that's a less popular idea now. He said it has to do with the amount of fat that you are eating, but I shouldn't be concerned. By the way, this was a general doctor, not a specialist. I feel like I'm just getting mixed messages about this because after your podcast I got the idea that it was a bad thing. I've been reading online a lot of stuff that talks about the foods that we eat that cause gas that makes the floating poop. I was surprised because some healthy things that were listed were apples, honey and prunes. What is the deal? Is it good or bad or doesn't matter?

I want to have a stool test done to see what's going on and find out if my liver and gut are normal. What is the best kit I could buy to help me dive into those issues but won't cost me an arm and a leg? Something that is reliable. Also, can you just do a blood test for this or is stool better?

Q5 - 49:42

I have this problem where every time I'm in a car and airplane, somewhere that I know it's really inconvenient to go to the bathroom I have to go. Even if I'm driving to church or work locally, I have to leave 15 minutes early just in case I have to stop at a gas station and go to the bathroom. What is my problem and how do I get back to living my life?

. Do you think CBD oil helps with constipation? It's been helping me with pain in joints, but does it help or hurt with constipation?
